Video of the week

Last night's Colbert Report was brilliant, with sharp comedic writing and marvelous self-deprecating bits featuring Hillary Clinton and especially John Edwards:

Edwards: There are two Americas; one America that does the work, and one that reaps the rewards..."

Edwards: "Hey!"

Edwards: "If we want to, we can end poverty in 30 years:"

The full Edwards video:

Jump on over to the Colbert Report website and also see Hillary Clinton save the day and Barack Obama get in the final word...

There are more than 19,000 like this on ABC's web site...


But if you watched the self-congratulatory Good Morning America today, you'd have thought the event was moderated by the ghost of Edward R. Murrow. Then on to the polygamy trials, which is, of course, news vital to the republic.

As Will Bunch of The Philadelphia Daily News observed, "Indeed, if I were a citizen of one of those nations where America is seeking to 'export democracy,' and I had watched the debate, I probably would have said, 'No thank you.' Because that was no way to promote democracy."

Television is no longer a source for unbiased journalism. Except, of course, for The Daily Show.

A certain logic...

Perhaps the GOP is stronger on defense. If the Democrats can't even protect the country from Republicans, how will they protect it from terrorists?

re: The elite and the bitter...

We must abandon the prevalent belief in the superior wisdom of the ignorant.-Daniel Boorstin

Current Lou Dobbs poll on CNN:

No more dummies for President...

I know elite is a bad word in politics, you want to go bowling and throw back a few beers... But the job you're applying for? And if you get it and it goes well? They might carve your head into a mountain. If you don't actually think you're better than us, then what the **** are you doing?

In fact, not only do I want an elite President, I want someone who is embarrassingly superior to me. Someone who speaks 16 languages and sleeps two hours a night hanging upside down in a chamber they themselves designed. I want someone like this guy:

(Some unrelated trivia... "this guy" is actually actress Meg Wyllie.)

See Jon Stewart support "elitism" and accurately
describe what it's like to live in a small town in western Pennsylvania...

This does not bode well...

Today's the anniversary of Lincoln's assassination and the Titanic hitting the iceberg, and to top it off, today's National Temperature Index is 666°F.

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
